<div class="quote_poster">Quoting Voodoo Child:</div><div class="quote_post">This thread is hilarious. I love it... the Grizzlies trade away the heart and soul of their entire team... arguably their best player... and all they get in return is an unmotivated, poor ball handling rookie... and people in the Rockets forum act like they're getting ripped off... haha... To add to it all, the Grizzlies have to take on Stromile Swift,... perhaps the worst player in the NBA? Perhaps... I also love how this time of year everyone is an expert on the draft... I never saw any of you guys posting in the college forum this year... what do you all know about Rudy Gay? Please... you're all reactionary posters... you have no idea about Gay's game, but you hear some analyst call him a potential All-Star and all of a sudden that's your opinion... Signing off and winding down...</div> To be fair...if this trade goes down you will have the second worst player in the NBA in stromile. We have the worst (Ryan Bowen). The reason why I hate this trade is because this team allready has its main core. Adding Gay would add youth and depth to our line up. When we give away Stromile and Gay, we potentially lose depth and youth and are still over the salary cap so we can't sign a big free agent. Battier might make an instant impact, but in the long run and if inuries occur were gonna have mediocre players replacing our injured ones.
